The Tarp Garden is Bursting Forth Beautiful Hot Cherry Peppers

The hot cherry peppers are simply gorgeous! There are enough for the whole neighborhood too!

The RED on these peppers couldn't be any redder! Oh, they are just magnificent!

As a gardener, one knows that when it's time to harvest the crops, Autumn is getting close! But lets not rush the season. This cherry pepper plant has a lot more to give before the frosts of Autumn stop it. Meanwhile, we'll be picking and giving.........and picking and canning...........and picking and drying.

Such beauty can only be provided by Mother Nature! Truely inspirational.

The Cucumbers are Up To The Sky!

Perhaps being told that it isn't possible caused the cucumber plants to grow right up that jacob's ladder that I told you about a while ago.

Well look at those cucumbers!

Of course, when growing cucumbers up to the sky, one must be ever mindful of the dangling cucumbers and their weight. However, cucumbers will climb the ladder, they will!

Our brussels sprouts are starting to come on. They are an interesting vegetable. The sprout grows at the main stem and on top of the leaf, right in that nook. They're nearly the size of marbles. Won't be long.

Meanwhile, we are still enjoying cucumbers. The tomatoes are still green, but turning slowly. The hot peppers are HOT! and delicious!
